EMNES Policy Paper 008 – Global Value Chains in the euro-Mediterranean: Becoming the pillar for regional integration
EMNES Policy Paper 008

The objective of this policy brief is to examine the status of global value chains (GVCs) on the two shores of the Mediterranean and provide some insights on how to enhance regional integration.

We argue that GVCs will help firms improve their productivity, that SMEs will become more sustainable and generally diversify exports from the region. To achieve this, addressing non-tariff measures, boosting the business environment and improving blue-collar workers skills are all essential.
